romney team. they lost the election but they're not aware of it. here we have another adviser to mitt romney who wrote an editorial, and here's what they wrote. quote, fighting democrats to a draw on medicare, including the fact that the republicans retain comfortable control of the house may well be seen one day as a key moment in american politics when mediscare attacks lost its potency. first of all you lost the election, i don't know what you're talking about. second of all you're the one who did mediscre. and treating american people in a mature fashion pays difficult dents in that calm, persistent and well reasoned arguments can overcomeovercome demagoguery. here is another one. romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year. that means he carried the majority of the middle class voters while john mccain lost white voters younger than 30 by 10 points. romney won these voters, sure, he talks about how they won. but i got bad news

and mitt romney was not elected. the american people liked most of the president's policies, and they want the government to function. if i were a house member, a republican, and i'm thinking of 2014, i would find a way to come up with real proposals and make meaningful change in the nation's tax code. >> jennifer: they are in a box. if they put a specific proposal on the table for either medicare cuts or specific loopholes they want to close whatever, it means that they're bound to those things. that's why nobody wants to put anything in writing. today speaker boehner appointed candace mill for chair the house administration committee. now all week, we've heard all the theirs were men. do you think this is intended and will quiet down the critics that the republicans weren't living? >> no. i mean, it's a nice gesture. it's wonderful to see another woman in a leadership position in congress, but the republican--enough cannot be said about the fact that they need more women. they need more people of color and you should not have to be called out in the media for lack of female reputation am

% of what he wanted. when romney was running for office, there was not a peep until the end of the campaign. he was basically saying we could have a balanced budget amendment. we could cap spending and cut it. so their own colleagues have not told them these last many years that in order to reduce the deficit, you need more revenues, whether that comes from higher rates or higher taxes or getting rid of deductions. so when one of their own says it, it's a shock to the system. >> jennifer: yes, for sure. kerry, do you think that the tea party is going to be able to kill the plan before it gets started? >> you know, it's really the struggle that is going on right now. the speaker put out this plan yesterday that clearly you know is a reversal from where he was at least publicly over the last year and a half, the endorsed revenues privately. you know, he's struggling with keeping his republican conference in line he's saying we need to do the 98% the tax locked in those rates for 98% of the americans, but he has a real issue with them and we're seeing it with the conservative pundits right now
